kivy and wing IDE

I am developing a GUI with Kivy. I installed Kivy within my virtual environment and I can debug example appplications using Kivy. They work fine. However in the source assistant I do not have access to classes from Kivy. any suggestion about what's wrong?

To be more precise,I do see the ources of the Kivy in the source assistant but when I do a goto definition for a class name the definition is not found. is this normal behavior?

Do you mean clicking on the class name link in Source Assistant, or clicking on the class name in the source code and doing goto-definition? In either case, it sounds a bit like something is not right. Can you please provide a specific example with import statement and code that does this? Then we can try it here to see what is going on.

Yes it is exactly the problem I encountered. Well I am sorry again but for some unknown reason it works now. I probable had not configured something correctly. Sorry for bothering you.

Based on the above, my best guess is Wing was still analyzing sources (which is a somewhat complex 3-stage process; you can see its progress in the lower left of Wing's window) or perhaps it just failed to do some of the analysis until you took some other action (configuration change, or moving around the sources) to trigger it. If you have Wing 7, this _might_ match some other bugs that are being reported. We're looking into those now.
